Once again, the minority proved to be smarter than the majority when it came to picking winners for the 2013 CMA Awards. Actually, the minority proved smarter than ToC Staff, as well. Readers and staff picked less than half of the correct winners for country music’s biggest awards show, but one team was a clear winner.

With four correct picks, Team ToC gets the win! Readers picked just two awards accurately (Single and Vocal Duo of the Year), while staff got those two plus Album and Group of the Year. The night’s biggest honors were a toss-up, so we won’t feel bad about going 0-3 on Entertainer, Male and Female Vocalist if you don’t. Deal?

After four awards shows, Team ToC has two wins to readers’ one win. There was also one tie. Take a look at the results below — we’ll see you in April!
